The Diving Board

My friend Abigail, and I decided to go swim in the pool near the park and spotted a new diving board just installed. We dared each other to jump off it. My friend dived off with ease, but when I jumped, I slipped on the slimy surface of the board. Luckily, I barely grabbed the edge of the board and desperately screamed for help. My friend quickly ran up the stairs and told me to hold still. “I’m trying to hang on,” I shouted back. She finally lifted me up and I never jumped off a high diving board ever again.
